**Reiny**, Tuesday, August 2, 2011 at 10:36pmlet speed of boat in still water be x mph

upstream:

speed = x-5

time = 36/(x-5)

downstream:

speed = x+5

time = 54/(x+5)

the two times are equal, so

36/(x-5) = 54(x+5)

54x - 270 = 36x + 180

18x = 450

x = 25

The speed of the boat without a current is 25 mph
